In this episode of the Art of Business English podcast, "How To Manage Discussions When Chairing A Meeting," I dive into the essential strategies for effective meeting facilitation. This episode is crafted for professionals ready to steer discussions with confidence and ensure everybody’s voice is heard.

I share the importance of creating clear guidelines, the nuances of active listening, and methods for encouraging equal participation. Highlighting the chair’s role in staying neutral, I also provide phrases that can help maintain objectivity and foster a collaborative atmosphere. To round off the discussion, I offer advice on concluding meetings effectively, laying down next steps, and expressing gratitude for participants' insights.
